Hulu has released the first trailer for its upcoming series adaption of the popular YA detective book series The Hardy Boys. The series puts a new spin on the classic characters for a new generation, and as you’ll see, it will be a little darker and more intense than the books.
In the series, the Hardy boys, Frank (Rohan Campbell) and Joe (Alexander Elliot), arrive in Bridgeport, and while there they set out to uncover the truth behind a recent tragedy that has changed their lives, and in doing so, uncover something much more sinister involving the dangerous mysteries their parents are connected to. It looks like it could be a pretty good show after watching the trailer, I’m at least willing to give it a shot.
Campbell and Elliot star in the series alongside James Tupper, Keana Lyn Bastidas, Linda Thorson, Bea Santos, Adam Swain, Atticus Mitchell, Riley O’Donnell, Christian Perri, Rachel Drance, and Stephen R. Hart.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hardy Boys below:
After a family tragedy strikes, Frank Hardy (Rohan Campbell), 16, and his brother Joe (Alexander Elliot), 12, are forced to move from the big city to their parent’s hometown of Bridgeport for the summer. Staying with their Aunt Trudy (Bea Santos), Frank and Joe’s quiet summer quickly comes to a halt when they discover their dad, detective Fenton Hardy (James Tupper) has taken on a secret investigation. Realizing that their Dad may be onto something the boys take it upon themselves to start an investigation of their own, and suddenly everyone in town is a suspect.
The Hardy Boys is executive produced by Athena Georgaklis, Joan Lambur, Peter Mohan, Doug Murphy, Jason Stone, and Pam Westman. Season 1 directors include John Stone, Jason Stone, Jeff Renfroe, Melanie Orr, and Casey Walker.
All 13 episodes of The Hardy Boys will be released on Hulu on December 4th.
